's a wednesday at 6:00. good morning and thanks for joining us. i'm kristen sze. >> i'm eric thomas. topping our news looks as though california's first execution in five years will not take place at san quentin this week and probably not this year. a federal judge has changed his mind and put off tomorrow's scheduled lethal injection. abc 7's terry mcsweeney is at the u.s. 9th circuit court of appeals. that's where the attorney general will be. >> attorney general jerry brown wants the execution to go forward. they will file with the 9th district court of appeals today. that's because the u.s. federal judge jeremy fogel reversed his decision from just last week and was saying the execution could go forward as long as rapist albert brown had a choice of the method of execution either the one-shot or three-shot technique. the 9th circuit returned fogel's initial decisionsy saying that the one-shot method isn't offered in california so he couldn't be offered that. the protocol he objected to in 2006 hasn't been fixed. >> they say what's called the con
to stream line the size of government, i want to use technology, like we do in silicon valley, to do more with less to, bring some of that managerial, innovation and expertise in silicon valley to sacramento. we have to reform welfare and reform the public employee pension benefits as well. that's the outline of the plan. i'm sure we will have more to talk about as we go through the debate tonight. >> is there something specific you would do to reach a budget deal with lawmakers at the capitol in a timely manner? >> well, first, we must start earlier on the budget. you know, the governor puts out his budget in january. then really nothing much happens until the may revise. we need to start working on it earlier. and then i think there's some structural reforms we must do. we should go to a two-year budgeting cycle. this business of having our back against the wall, not having the ability to think longer term than three to six months out, so those are two reforms i would make right away. >> mr. brown. >> yes. the budget has never been this late before. i do know something about budgets, i
. anne makovec is at san quentin prison in marin county to tell us why. >> reporter: if the plan that was in effect on monday would have stuck, albert greenwood brown would be dead right now but he is alive behind me at san quentin this morning because of a decision by a federal judge last evening. brown would have been california's first execution in almost five years, but judge fogel suspended the execution until he finishes reviewing a lawsuit against california's lethal injection procedure. concerns that it's cruel and unusual punishment. if the first of three drugs administered doesn't work properly, the inmate could suffer extreme pain from the third drug which stops the heart. the family of brown's victim just wants it over with. here's her brother speaking about what it was like after his 15-year-old sister disappeared. >> i remember getting in the truck with my father and...

for us right now. steve? >> reporter: lisa, thanks. good evening. the blown section of the san bruno pipeline is here in washington, the ntsb is in the middle of its investigation. but now the pressure is on pg&e to alter its system immediately. in the hearing here in washington, up on capitol hill today, chris johns, the head of pg&e says he's already lowered the pressure of the natural gas in his pipelines that run through populated areas. he's inviting congress to require big gas lines to be moved out of residential neighborhoods. but a clash came on ougauto mat shutoff valves. senator barbara boxer literally sniffed at that. >> you would agree there would have been a shutoff valve, we would have averted the disaster. >> if there were a remote controlled shutoff valve in there, the gas flow would have stopped faster by the time our people got there. >> reporter: so the challenge is laid down. will pg&e make its very, very expensive upgrades and switch to automatic shutoff valves in all of these high-risk areas. about 3,600 miles of pipeline we're told. and do it immediately. the c
the record straight. the candidates used their first meeting to define their governing strategy. >> if we are going to change the direction of the state, we're going to have to do it very differently. >> because you don't know how to run a private business, you can run government. >> reporter: whitman said spending a record $19 million of her own money to fund her campaign buys her negotiating power in sacramento, something she says brown won't have because unions are funding his campaign. >> putting jerry brown in charge of negotiating with the labor unions around pensions, around how many people we have in this state government is like putting count dracula in charge of the blood ba blood bank. >> reporter: brown was quick to point out he had the record of vetoing labor. and says whitman will reward her backers with tax cuts. >> i tell you the majority will get an immediate tax break from her key economic plan, which is to eliminate totally the california capital gains tax. >> immigration is a defining issue. >> we can't round them up and deport them like they did in eastern europe. we

used to do when i was governor of california. >> reporter: brown frequently strayed off message. whitman stayed on message, often reciting lines. >> i want to use technology to do more with less. >> reporter: justtying her $100 million investment in her own campaign, sháe won't be hold into special interest she say, brown will. >> i mean my view is putting jerry brown in charge of negotiating with unions. it's like putting count dracula in charge of the blood bank. >> i did it once, i did it twice. >> really the only new debate topic tonight, an argument over the death penalty. meg whitman favors the death penalty. jerry brown has long been opposed to the plan. >>> both candidates declared victory but is there a clear winner? that depends on who you ask. >>> oakland police say they have a suspect in custody and are searching for another. the shooting happened around 5:15 this evening. officers say the victim is a 22- year-old man who suffered critical wounds. the search for a second gunman is still under way at this hour. a source told ktvu news the vie violence started earlier
